Marco Sorensen has withdrawn from this weekend’s British GT Championship round after sustaining injuries in his heavy impact during the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Dane, who put his No. 95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE on class pole for the French endurance classic, crashed out during the night.

He was set to drive the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in Sunday’s two-hour British GT race at Donington, sharing the car with team owner/driver Andrew Howard.

A statement released by Aston Martin Racing read:

“Under the advice of doctors, Marco Sorensen has withdrawn from Beechdean AMR’s entry for this weekend’s British GT round at Donington Park as he continues to recover from his accident in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“Marco sustained a minor concussion as well as a small foot injury in the crash last Sunday morning.

“The Dane is expected to return to driving duties swiftly and will participate in the FIA World Endurance Championship prologue in July.”

It’s unclear whether or not Beechdean AMR will replace Sorensen for this weekend’s race or simply withdraw.

Sorensen and Howard are currently eighth in the British GT GT3 standings with a best result of third so far this year.
